400 Year Old Map Shows HS-2 Route Unchanged

Old HS2 Map

8:00am 27th April 2014

Campaigners say a 400 year old map of the Chilterns is the latest tool in the fight against HS2.

The map from 1620 of the Chequers estate shows the countryside between Wendover and Great Missenden.

51m campaign group leader Martin Tett told Mix 96:

"It shows all the fields and woods that used to exist at that time and the remarkable thing is if you overlay it on a new OS map from today it's almost unchanged in terms of it's beauty and the way it fits into the environment"

Campaigners say it proves the damage HS2 will do to an area which hasn't changed for four centuries.
